We arrived in Idaho Springs in the evening and were looking for something to eat. Right in front of our hotel, we saw a big sign: BBQ Smokin' Yards, and we decided to give it a try.
We ordered a combination meal of two types of meat and two side dishes, which was simply excellent!
If you are around - don't miss it. They told us they also have another branch in the Denver area. Look for it if you are in the area.
